What type of Hawk is this?

Recommended Posts

Found this beauty in rural Colusa County today. I have my suspicions but wanted to ask the experts.  Thanks!!

I'm trying to decide between Dark Swainson's and Dark Red-tailed. It looks like there is some white showing on the undertail coverts which would indicate Swainson's. Therefore I believe it is a Dark Swainson's.
